From another thread, it seems that some X5s' iDrive can be rebooted while in motion (not parked/stopped) and some cannot. I think it would be interesting to figure out if this is tied to iDrive version, so please give this a shot, carefully, and report. So far we have:

CAN reboot while in motion:
- 11/2018.49 AU
- 3/2019.35 US
- 3/2019.45 CA
- 7/2019.35 US
- 7/2019.35 US
- 7/2019.47 US
- 7/2019.53 AU

CANNOT reboot while in motion:
- 7/2019.35 US

For those that don't know, iDrive is rebooted simply by holding the volume button for 20-30s and then letting go when main screen goes black. This is useful when something seems to be misbehaving, such as the BC button fails to change the dash display, or any number of other bugs.
